Signed, Sealed, Delivered!

Well, this has to be some kind of record for me, folks.  I started this quilt on Saturday and finished it Wednesday.  Even got a label on it AND delivered it!

This was made for a former next-door neighbor lady who has cancer.  I visited her last week Wednesday and wished I had a quilt to give her.  I had my camera along and was showing her pictures of a couple of the quilts I'd made, and she enjoyed seeing them.

I went home and pulled fabrics for a quilt to make for her.  I thought a Sudoku quilt like the ones Sarah had made would work nicely, and Sarah graciously shared her instructions with me.

When I stopped back to visit the neighbor lady this week, she saw what was in my bag and said, "Oh, you've brought a quilt to show me."  I unfolded it over her lap and said, "Yes, and take a look at the label."

"It's for you.  I thought I'd bring you a little bit of springtime early."

She was delighted!

What a nice thing to do. I hand quilt, so there is no way I could finish a quilt that fast. Praying your neighbor.

P., it's awesome!!! I love your fabric and color choices, and isn't it wonderful that it came together so quickly? That's one of the best things about that pattern. Here's a big pat on the back and a whoop whoop for you!!

Massive whoop whoop! from me. 4 days from concept to finish is incredible. Added whoop for making someone's week too with your generosity.

You are a total sweetheart (but I already knew that )

The quilt is beautiful too - it screams Spring.
